He is "Vidur" of Mahabharata. Rehmat Zakaria, the legal advisor of Shantilal, is very sharp, smart and a very kind hearted person. "Faithfulness is his dictum" and right from establishment he was involved with Goenka group business and family matters. Today he is not only legal advisor but also a judgment maker with respect to any matter whatsoever in the family too. Rehmat Zakaria smells the happenings before they happen through his network, set of contacts, and associate manpower. (Similar to how Vidur handled "Lakshagriha" matters in Mahabharata).
For Mansen (Dhutrashtra) & Yuvraj (Duryodhan), he is the only big stumbling block whenever they think about the ownership of Goenka group of companies & other related matters. Kumud used to tie rakhee to him & hence giving the impression of national integrity, he always tries to keep harmony in the family particularly between the two brothers Mansen and Dharam and eventually their sons/daughters & bahus...
A very highly regarded person by the family and a very important person when it comes to a vital assessment... Rehmat Zakaria, Devji Goenka and Keshav are the TRIO, the wall of impartiality when controversy arrives. He forms one of the major standing pillar in the family. The main element of his portrayal is loyalty towards the family. He loves children of Goenka family…(Dada-pautra relationship) even though being Muslim by religion he knows the "Geeta" very well. He has a very neat Urdu pronunciation.
